[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Some time ago I posted a picture of a juvenile Ocellated Lizard. Here's the picture. It's has beautiful round dots on the side of the body. This adult (I think it's a female)lizard sat perfectly exposed to the sun, when a ignorant and dumb Dutch tourist passed by a stopped. The lizard disappeared in her (or his) safe shelter. The darn tourist didn't leave before taking too many pictures and the lizard didn't dare coming out of the shelter completely. Or maybe...only when this tourist had left a long time ;-)
Taken in San Nicolas del Puerto: beautiful village in the region of dehesas in Southern Spain.

Hi Jacob.
You managed to capture a very interesting scene and select time for this excellently. Amazing pose and glance of this cute lizard. Lights and darks are very impressive, sharpness and details are great. Perfect done and TFS.

Bonne journée.

Hi Jacob,
Nice shot on this beautiful lizard. POV and composition are great. Body texture and colors are well registered. TFS this little dragon from southern Spain.

Hi Jacob,

I like your POV and the pose of the lizard catched.
The vivid colour of their skin makes a great contrast against the rocks on the back.

Hi again againg :)))))

What a splendid portrait!
The details on the skin here are amazing and it's pretty impressive that this little fellow was so nice to let you get so close that you've used your macro lens :)
The rich colors are indeed fantastic and the exposure is nicely managed (maybe just a tiny step under...but i know: better safe than sorry, right?) :)
Great work!

Bravo and TFS
